lyrics

Soon as we finish off the turkey and the cranberry
Sauce, I'm off the basement with aunt Mary
Breaking out the boxes labeled xmas
A 7 foot tree completes the checklist
Tree up, stocking stuffed, now we ready,
The warmth of the season always
gets my heart heavy
kinda feel emotional this time of year
Know the holidays are sposed to bring all kinda cheer,
But I wonder how the homeless is gettin through em
Without presents or family to give em to em
And the orphans, who watch us spend fortunes,
on stuff we can't afford when they only get a portion,
That's why I try to show some love,
Donate some time sweaters, coats and gloves,
ya know
Growin up we didn't have alotta dough
Borderline poor, but don't that to my momma though
Single mother, cuz was pop was never there
But she saved all year so the tree was never bare
And I'm proud of her, I know I'm lucky G,
Pray to be half the parent that she was to me
Taught me some valuable lessons,
Like if you're blessed its only right to be a blessing
And imma always remember
The season of giving don't start in December

CHORUS
This is my Christmas Prayer,
I hope this sees you in good health
or gets you there, yeah
Sometimes we forget you there
But the the blessing is that we have
gifts to share,
I say again
This is my Christmas Prayer,
I hope this sees you in good health
or gets you there, yeah
Sometimes we forget you there
But the the blessing is that we have
gifts to share,

To the students I taught in Langhorne at woods services,
who never the good fortune of better alternatives
Products of poor parenting and mad abuse
And they wonder Feel like they don't deserve to live
How serious is it?
Some kids go years without a parental visit
But they send you mad expensive presents
And you would trade it all to be in their presence
Some are never goin home again
I pray you never spend a holiday alone again
Gets me in a reflective mood
How would you live if you
had no one you were special to
Some people see it as some decorations and lights
I see it as a symbol on how to live your life
Why make a child if u can't take care of it
And What good is fortune if you aint sharing it
The best gift is easy to see,
It isn't in a box sitting under a tree
It's good in the winter and all year through,
The greatest gift I have is you
The best gift is easy to see,
It isn't in a box sitting under a tree
It's good in the winter and all year through,
The greatest gift I have is you

CHORUS
This is my Christmas Prayer,
I hope this sees you in good health
or gets you there, yeah
Sometimes we forget you there
But the the blessing is that we have
gifts to share,
I say again
This is my Christmas Prayer,
I hope this sees you in good health
or gets you there, yeah
Sometimes we forget you there
But the the blessing is that we have
gifts to share
